GTMW 2011. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate simcoe hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2012 On tap at Argus BarGrille in Madison, WI. for afternoon, pre-GTOM crawling. Dispensed to a shaker with a hazed, orange/amber hue, abundant, off white head foam, and good cling to the web-like lacing. The aroma was light to the nose, but still a noticeable amount of floral, sweet fruit, and citrus notes, with maybe a touch of resin on the back side. Medium bodied, moderately bittered, and a nice balance of smooth malt and hops. Enjoyably quaffable! This year, before GTOM ticket sales, stopped at the Old Fashioned in Madison and had a shaker full. The citrus was more as grapefruit & lemon, the carbonation was lively, and the hop bitterness lightly lingered into the finish. Again, a good session IPA.

Bottle pours hazy amber with a huge creamy white head. Aroma shows tons of citrus sitting on top of a sweet caramel malt. Flavor shows orange/tangelo, grapefruit, florals, grass and light pine with less malt presence than the nose indicated. Overall body is light to moderate, dry, and moderately bitter.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow this IPA pale ale as hoppy with a fresh and floral aroma and may be my 3rd or 2nd favorite IPA as of 6-7-11 with New Glarus’ Moon Man and perhaps another beating it out. It has the richest, thickest, and creamiest large head of an IPA I’ve had so far. It is golden yellow, very hoppy, and smooth with a nice mellow yet pungently sharp IPA flavor like a fine cheese. This is a Wisconsin beer.

12oz bottle from Steve’s Liquor and More in Madison, WI. Pours a lightly hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, dense and foamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter citrus-oranges with some pineapple and a nice mix of grass and pines. A light caramel sweetness with a touch of pale, bready malts. A hint of resin and grapefruit earth. Flavor is similar. A good amount of grassy and slightly piney citruses up front with a nice orange, grapefruit, and slight pineapple. A bit earthy with a solid, lightly sweetened caramel and a bready pale malt to balance. Finishes with a medium bitterness and a good amount of grassy, earthy, and piney hops that have a nice balance between the citrus and lightly sweetened pale malts. Dry with a lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light, smooth body and soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Well hopped and nicely balanced with a clean, citrusy bitterness. Pleasant pale malt and a touch of caramel maltiness to balance nicely making this easy drinking and enjoyable. Good beer.

Reviewed from notes.
Served in a tulip glass. Pours an orange-copper color with a white head and a bit of lacing. The nose is slight citrus hops plus a bit of light malt backing. The flavor is a bit of bread and caramel plus some very mild hops. Feel is slightly bitter with a pretty good body. Decent drinkability.
